I honestly think we should stop pigeon holing him as a half court first option and just make him go back to the opportunistic scorer he was behind Kawhi. Yeah, we have no Kawhi but I really hate seeing Siakam jack up bricks behind the 3 point line like he’s Paul George
We did kind of do this eventually,,,or Siakam did this to himself depending how you look at it.
I don't disagree with getting Siakam reps as the first option last year. Setting that expectation after Kawhi left forced him to work on a different skill set and expand his game. Norm was the only other guy on the roster who could've done it for a full 82 only he didn't/doesn't have the play making chops to make it work. NBA offenses almost always function better with a set hierarchy.
Anyways, now we have a better idea of his limitations and can use that info to better build moving forward. And we have a more well rounded Siakam despite his bubble performance.
